William Ayers – Obama Is A Family Friend

By Ayers own adminission in his book, delayed to be released after the 2008 election, he and Obama are Family Friends. Remember Obama flatly denied this. Obama LIED to the public, made sure Ayers and his wife did not say anything to the press prior to the election. 

Also notice the caption of the picture, Ayers listening to Rev. Wright… Obama’s spiritual guide that he also disassociated himself with… You know the God Damn America guy… hmmm. 3 Days after election day Wright and Ayers… Where’s Rashid? Maybe he is over with Hamas getting some planning done… Where is Rezko… Oh yea jail…

I do not care that he was friends with Ayers, it is the fact that he lied about it to the public and the public sucked it up.

Bill Ayers at Northwestern

Jeremiah Wright Jr. speak at Northwestern University during an event hosted by Northwestern’s Black Student Alliance. Ayers’ name gained prominence during the presidential race when John McCain’s campaign accused Barack Obama of having close ties to Ayers. (Tribune photo by Charles Cherney / November 7, 2008)

 

In a new afterword to his memoir, 1960s radical William Ayers describes himself as a “family friend” of President-elect Barack Obama and writes that the campaign controversy over their relationship was an effort by Obama’s political enemies to “deepen a dishonest narrative” about the candidate.

Ayers describes phone threats and hate e-mail he received during the campaign, and he bemoans Obama’s guilt by association.

During the campaign, Ayers’ friendship with Obama was a favorite subject of conservative bloggers and talk show hosts who insisted the two were closer than the candidate was admitting. Ayers’ new description of the relationship seems to contradict Obama’s statements.

Obama had dismissed Ayers as “a guy who lives in my neighborhood” and “somebody who worked on education issues in Chicago that I know.”

A campaign spokesman told The New York Times last month that Ayers and Obama hadn’t spoken by phone or exchanged e-mail messages since Obama became a U.S. senator in January 2005. Obama himself denounced the “detestable acts” Ayers engaged in during the Vietnam era.

In the updated version of his 2001 book “Fugitive Days,” Ayers calls into question one of the more incendiary quotes attributed to him during the campaign: “I’m nowadays often quoted as saying, ‘I don’t regret setting bombs. I wish we’d set more bombs. I don’t think we did enough.’

“I never actually said that I ‘set bombs,’ nor that I wished there were ‘more bombs.’ … I killed no one, and I harmed no one, and I didn’t regret for a minute resisting the murderous assault on Viet Nam with every ounce of my being.”

He was particularly disturbed by a newspaper headline published in 2001: “No regrets for a love of explosives.”

“That’s neither my narrative nor my sentiment,” Ayers wrote, “but the idea was seized upon by the neocon media machine: I was an unrepentent and violent terrorist.”

Ayers wrote the new afterword on July 4, “in the heat of the summer presidential campaign, with all its attendant bells and whistles and spin, all the diversion and dissembling that happens every four years when the big election carnival rolls into town.”

Now a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and an expert on public school reform, Ayers was a member of the Weather Underground, a radical organization that claimed responsibility for a dozen bombings from 1970 to 1974.

He’ll appear Friday on “Good Morning America” to promote the re-issue of his book this week. The Tribune obtained a copy of the updated material.

In it, Ayers — who did not respond to requests for comment — summarized his relationship with Obama: “[W]e had served together on the board of a foundation, knew one another as neighbors and family friends, held an initial fund-raiser at my house, where I’d made a small donation to his earliest political campaign.”

Ayers lamented that his relationship with Obama became an issue.

“The more serious point is that Obama was asked once more to defend something that ought to be at the very heart of democracy: the importance of talking to many people in this complicated and wildly diverse society, of listening with the possibility of learning something new, of speaking with the possibility of persuading or influencing others. … In a robust and sophisticated democracy, political leaders, indeed, all of us, would seek out ways to talk with many people who hold dissenting, even radical, ideas.”

Obama was criticized by Sen. John McCain throughout the campaign for suggesting that, as president, he would sit down with the leaders of rogue nations like Iran and attempt to have substantive discussions.

Obama Is Not Politically Courageous

A classic video of from an Obamapologist.

He was not politcally courageous to leave his church for 20 years… At least not until it became politically necessary to do so because Jeremiah Wright’s hate speeches became public knowledge…

Now what is interesting is that this asshat is essential saying that Obama knew for quite a while that Wright was preaching hate and that Obama did not leave because he feared loosing the support of 8,000 members of the church… Another words, Obama was lying when he said that he did not know about Wright’s speeches…

Also another important thing to note is that if Barack Obama was not politically courageous to leave the church what does that say about his judgement… What will he do as President of the United States if something requires him to be politically courageous… Will he not do it because he will loose popularity…

The Obama Bunch

The Obama Bunch

Friends, Partners, Not Associations

The conservatives need to stop referring to people like Ayers, Rezko, Johnson as “Associates” of Obama. They were frieds and strategic partners. I have been saying this all along. These are the people close to him, each time he gets caught up in a lie about them, the story changes…

 

Critics of Senator Barack Obama make a strategic mistake when they talk about his “past associations.” That just gives his many defenders in the media an opportunity to counter-attack against “guilt by association.”

We all have associations, whether at the office, in our neighborhood, or in various recreational activities. Most of us neither know nor care what our associates believe or say about politics.

Associations are very different from alliances. Allies are not just people who happen to be where you are or who happen to be doing the same things you do. You choose allies deliberately for a reason. The kind of allies you choose says something about you.

Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, William Ayers, and Antoin Rezko are not just people who happened to be at the same place at the same time as Barack Obama. They are people with whom he chose to ally himself for years, and with some of whom some serious money changed hands.

Some gave political support, and some gave financial support, to Obama’s election campaigns, and Obama in turn contributed either his own money or the taxpayers’ money to some of them. That is a familiar political alliance — but an alliance is not just an “association” from being at the same place at the same time.

Obama could have allied himself with all sorts of other people. But, time and again, he allied himself with people who openly expressed their hatred of America. No amount of flags on his campaign platforms this election year can change that.

Unfortunately, all that most people know about Barack Obama is his own rhetoric and that of his critics. Moreover, some of his more irresponsible critics have made wild accusations — that he is not an American citizen or that he is a Muslim, for example.

All that such false charges do is discredit Obama’s critics in general. Fortunately, there is a documented, factual account of what Barack Obama has actually been doing over the years, as distinguished from what he has been saying during this election campaign, in a new best-selling book.

That book is titled The Case Against Barack Obama by David Freddoso. He starts off in the introduction by repudiating those critics of Obama who “have been content merely to slander him — to claim falsely that he refuses to salute the U.S. flag or was sworn into office on a Koran, or that he was born in a foreign country.” 

This is a serious book with 35 pages of documentation in the back to support the things said in the main text. In other words, if you don’t believe what the author says, he lets you know where you can go check it out.

Barack Obama’s being the first serious black candidate for president of the United States is what most people consider remarkable but how he got there is at least equally surprising.

The story of Obama’s political career is not a pretty story. He won his first political victory by being the only candidate on the ballot — after hiring someone skilled at disqualifying the signers of opposing candidates’ petitions, on whatever technicality he could come up with. 

Despite his words today about “change” and “cleaning up the mess in Washington,” Obama was not on the side of reformers who were trying to change the status quo of corrupt, machine politics in Chicago and clean up the mess there. Obama came out in favor of the Daley machine and against reform candidates.

Senator Obama is running on an image that is directly the opposite of what he has been doing for two decades. His escapes from his past have been as remarkable as the great escapes of Houdini.

Why much of the public and the media have been so mesmerized by the words and the image of Obama, and so little interested in learning about the factual reality, was perhaps best explained by an official of the Democratic party: “People don’t come to Obama for what he’s done, they come because of what they hope he can be.”

David Freddoso’s book should be read by those people who want to know what the facts are. But neither this book nor anything else is likely to change the minds of Obama’s true believers, who have made up their minds and don’t want to be confused by the facts.
